3:09am
nominee, all the smart money says romney is the nominee, everyone knows it, all of this is just a waste of time. everyone knows that when it is over romney will be the nominee, romney is the guy the media is not vetting. >> that is out there on the issues. he has been on this issue, and moved here. been on this side and moved here. what does that say? >>alisyn: the media has devoted a lot of time vetting him so having limited resources they think they have him covered. >> the media has a narrow focus so the attention span is, who is on top? who is moving up, and focus on that person, now, and move in and kill that person and see who can rise up after that. >> but by that met trek, 70 romney on top? >> romney continues to be on through the race and he has been examined in the previous

>>alisyn: the obama administration announcing significant changes to immigration policy. the department of homeland security will deport only the worst criminal offenders and not the ones who cause little problems to public safety. >> joining us is homeland security security expert at heritage foundation. good morning, sir. is this a blatant political move designed to get favor with some voters by the obama administration? or is it good public policy? >> it is not good public policy. every president sense we have had an immigration service has had the immigration service deport criminal aliens who do violent crimes and the notion
3:17am
this administration, where we put billions of dollars into homeland security since 9/11, they can't find the money to deport people breaking the law? that is a joke. >>alisyn: but, jails, the argument is immigration courts don't have the manpower and the hours on the dockets to deport everybody who is here illegal, so, accident it just make sense to start with the most dangerous cases? >>guest: of course not. this is about getting the hispanic vote. this is an incredible abuse of the law. congress never intended to have the president say we will not enforce the law. you actually from the president of the united states ordering the enter immigration work first to be trained not to enforce the law. it is unbelievable. >> will this make the job of folks at the border keeping
3:18am
easier, concentrating on the more serious offense? >>guest: it will be the opposite. we put tens of billions into securing the border and you have created a giant incentive for more to come across. >>alisyn: highway do you argue it is logical to deport 12 million or so illegal immigrants who are here? it is not practical. >>guest: well, that is a false choice. it is never the option between doing nothing or deporting everyone. go back and do what new york did, the broken windows theory. if you enforce the law you create a culture of compliance. if you have border security you enforce the law. you have real temporary worker programs, and work with mexico and their security situation, and their economic growth and next the problem. this is all about politics and
3:19am
nothing about fixing the problem and made it worse than before 9/11. a huge tragedy. huge waste of taxpayer dollars. allegation casey thank you, james, forgetting up early this morning for us. >> all eyes on washington as the super committee works overtime to hammer out a deal before the deadline on monday. but many say they are not even close to getting it done so we will have the latest coming up. >>alisyn: and debit card fees could be done but that does not noon you are in in the clear. mine was earned over the south pacific in 1943.

3:24am
are hiding, we have to read the fine print. replacing a lost debit card. >> that is common. lost debit cards. lost anything, the bank charges extra. it used to be $5 and now $15 or $20. >>clayton: next, a.t.m. bank fees and we see these at another institution's a.t.m., and you are getting fees for that. >>guest: you go to the a.t.m. you say yes, or no, but you do not realize on your statement is a secret hidden fee, another $2 so it is not $3 but $5. >>clayton: so although it is "free," you use another institution it is not just $3 you are charged but on top of that. >>guest: you pay twice when you use another bank a.t.m., your bank and the other bank. >>clayton: now when you use a
3:25am
teller you can be charged. >>guest: banks want you to use machines and some electronic only accounts charge you $8 or $12 or $10 to go to a teller. it is, really, the banks save so much with the services but they nickel and dome -- dime you. the big batches -- banks have make it harder to avoid fees. bank at a credit union. not a bank. >>clayton: i was charged for using paper, ordering past statements and i was charged. >>guest: if you go on an a.t.m. machine and download a print out of transactions you pay. if you want your image mailed back, you pay, if you want the statements mailed back banks will charge you for that. it is like the airlines. pay for your seat. for the aisle. you pay for the water. for the blanket.
3:26am
>>clayton: and now the increase per month from $2 to $12. >>guest: banks can charge monthly maintenance fees. the only thing that makes an account free is if it doesn't have monthly maintenance fees but it can have any other fee. banks are increasing the balance to avoid the fees and increasing direct deposit required and increasing the fee. >>clayton: if you have a ca put money in savings but you can be charged for this. >>guest: that is something that is going up and that is a hidden fee. people are trying to avoid the unfair overdraft fees where they say it is a courtesy to charge you $35 to get a $3 latte and the banks are prohibited from that so they are increasing the transfer of fees. >>clayton: and banks using to online mobile applications but you can be charged for that. >>guest: remember when we got a.t.m. cards and they were free.
3:27am
we got debit cards and they were free. the banks get you hooked and then they charge when you hooked. and they count on the convenience of the electronic payment system to keep you from switching banks. it is a pain in the neck to switch banks. people should move their money but you have to shop around and cancel the direct payments. so they actually charge you a fee and rely on it to keep you this. >> one more, not paying you back, what does that mean? >>guest: well, i think the banks are charging you to use your own money, to use your own card, and there are a lot of different fees like that, you will see. and the banks are not, very difficult in temperatures of the fees they charge. we recommended you shop around but the the banks make it hard o
3:28am
shop around. we have asked the bang dozen require put the fees on the internet so people like fox news or people like my group can down led the fees and makeshipping guides. that would be a real advance. >>clayton: maybe wrecks -- web sites will do this. and radio trance motions from air force one to the white house situation room on the day that president kennedy was killed. what clues they may reveal. and soccer balls, baseballs, and basket balls. banned from the playground? a school says they are "too dangerous." regions quick deposit lets you deposit checks

4:22am
information they get in congress. the firestorm was set off by "60 minutes," do you thing it is all right for a speaker to accept favorable stock deal and at the time you were speaker of the house in you do not think it has an appearance. >> only the appearance if you decide you are going to have to elaborate on a false premise, but it is not true. and that's that. >> i don't understand what part is not true. >> that i would act upon an investment. >>alisyn: the author is is the author of a new book "throw them all out." to expound on that exchange with "60 minutes," nancy pelosi brought hairs of visa after the initial public offering for a
4:23am
bargain basement price of $44 a share and after that, it doubled. what is illegal about that? >>guest: nothing illegal about it, but something wrong with it. assume you are a united states senator and i come to your office, and if i give you $10,000 cash in small bills ander caught, one or both of us is going to jail. that is bravery. if i come as a senator and say i will give you access to shares of stock and you can buy them cheap and it will make you $100,000 in one day, that's legal. that is wrong. >>alisyn: and at the time she cashed in on the initial public offering there was legislation that would have hurt credit cards and visa going through the house of representatives or through congress. is that a conflict of interest? >>guest: i think it is a massive conflict of interest. she and her husband accumulated between $1 million and $5 million of visa stock. and visa is not the bank that
4:24am
issues the credit card. they don't make interest on penalties but on the swipe fee. you go to a restaurant and the restaurant pays 3 percent to visa for the card use and the legislation that nancy pelosi pushed and supported had nothing to do with swipe fees, it does not affect visa. two other bills, one came from committee and bipartisan support never made it to the house of representatives floor because she would not bring it it was delayed for two years and the swipe fees became part of the reform package when introduced on the senate side. >>alisyn: this is hardly just nancy pelosi, we are focusing on "60 minutes," and she was one of the three, but this is a bipartisan issue. members of congress get all sorts of insiderness, and they, then, capitalize. why aren't there laws? >>guest: because they write the laws and they like it this way. the fact is, you get probably the best stock information if you are a senior member of
4:25am
congress because you get private briefing from the fed chairman and treasury secretary, during the financial crisis of 2008 in september 18, this was such a private briefing before the market tanked, and they gave a briefing to about a dozen law makes and the next day, at the of lawmakers dumped all of their stock or lots of their stock and some bought leveraged options that bet against the market. and made a killing. >>alisyn: this is why the approval ratings are so low, because this is the general feeling as you outline in the book that congress doesn't operate the way the rest of us have to. and all sorts of circumstances, including other questionable deals with nancy pelosi buying $100,000 in clean energy fuel at an initial public offering, a select group of people that get chosen for these, and pushed the
4:26am
number of those, pushed for over $750 million in taxpayer cash to fix up areas of san francisco and there are lots of examples of members of congress who have listen democrats they capitalize on after getting insider information. >>guest: it is amazing and all legal. and the ethics committees have said it is ethical if you were a united states senator you can buy a piece of farmland and put money in an earmark into the highway build to build a road running right by it and you can turn around and sell it in less than a year and double your money. that has been done numerous times so they are using our money to increase the value of their real estate investments. >>alisyn: what is the answer? >>guest: the answer is throughout them all out, both sides need to have zero tolerance policy even if one your guys do this we need zero tolerance policy and change the laws. if you are open the senate banking committee you should not be trading bang -- bank stocks.
4:27am
>>alisyn: can we turn our attention to warren buffett, a story how he helps construct the bailouts that he was able to cash in on. how did that work? >> warren buffett was advising first the bush administration, and particularly the obama administration in early 2009 and he helped put together what was called the public private partnership with treasury, a five page letter explaining how we structure the bailout of the banks with numerous meetings with geithner and others. and while he did this he bought, literally, millions of shares in bank stocks that would end up getting bailed out by the public and private partnership. this is not illegal but highly unethical and insider dealing if he did this in the private sector, it would be regards as insider trading and he would be in trouble but because he uses
4:28am
taxpayer, it is deemed to to the apply. >>alisyn: it is betting against the country. >>guest: it is. and that is great, using the term "betting," we with not tolerate in our country for a second an athlete betting on a game they are involved in. no one would want jordan betting for or against the chicago bulls when he he lies for them. you have congressman or powerful individuals who are betting, placing bets on a game where they determine the outcome but the stakes are higher here than in a experts event. >>alisyn: and nancy pelosi said she has advocated for congress to act in the public interest and not in the pearl interests, and selected claims are contradicted by leader's pelosi's clear record. >>guest: she has been fighting the credit card banks but not visa and that is what they are
4:29am
trying to obfuscate, nothing to do with the swipe fees. >>alisyn: the book is "throw them all out," and a lot of people grow with that mantra. >>alisyn: these so-called patriotic millionaire, do they want to put their money where their mouth is? watch this. >> would you be willing to dough fate to the department of treasury? >> individually? >> yes. >> no. >>alisyn: we will hear from the reporter who got that story coming up. >> also, tired of putting your exercise routine on hold when you travel? you to longer have to, we will show you how to travel for the holidays and still tone up with just a dvd player. copd makes it hard to breathe,

4:55am
willing to voluntarily give money they wanted the government to force everyone if do it. >>alisyn: now, in their defense, they were making this trip to capitol hill to try to get them to up the highest tax rate on the multi-millionaires and billionaires and their point is, while it is clever you were asking them for a couple thousand, that would not make a dent but if you got all of them to pay a higher tax rate you would have billions more going into cut the deficit. >>reporter: the point is, when you believe in something, you do it. even if no one else is doing it, you lead by example, and, if we did raise taxes, okay, we get, 80 billion and that will not do anything to a $1.2 trillion. we need to cut spending. >>alisyn: the number open the graphic said $70 billion so if you taxed all the multi millionaires at a higher tax rate for one year, it is $70 billion to $88 billion, do we
4:56am
really think that is chump change in do they not have a point, that they could, perhaps, do more? >>reporter: well, the point is we need to cut spending. that is the main issue here in america. spending. so, we need to start there. >> and get entitlements in order because they are the lion's share of all of the spending. but, michelle, we got a kick of your interaction with the multi millionaires, that was clever. thanks now sharing it with us. leave your basketballs, and soccer balls and footballs at home, one cool is banning them. are we going too easy on the kids? more on that ahead. stay tuned.

nice to see you. >>governor huckabee: better to see you than the snakes. >>clayton: we will do that during your segment. >>governor huckabee: okay, other snakes ... >>clayton: we have seen rise of rick perry. the rise of herman cain. and the rise of michele bachmann. and people making too much of the rise of gingrich, suddenly. not necessarily, gingrich is unquestionably one of the smartest people in the race, with a terrific background of expense, and he understands the depth of issues and how washington works and people are responding to that. whether he can sustain it is another thing. in my opinion, gingrich would have probably been better if this started a month later. because what you want to do is peak during the time of the iowa caucus without all of the media scrutiny he is starting to face. it will only get more intense over the next month.
5:38am
>>peter: the media likes to build up people and then they like to take them down. >>governor huckabee: they are not only in the construction and deconstruction business. so what you watch is, they like to say, we are able to fine this person and show you what a wonderful person he is, and, by the way, now we have 24 pages of things we would like to show you to deconstruct and it is part of the game you have to play. >>alisyn: he is resonating in a poll in new hampshire and they have him in a tie with romney who as you know, new hampshire is his backyard. so, this is 29 percent for romney, and 27 percent for gingrich and then ron paul and herman cain. it is possible, governor, that gingrich could beat romney in new hampshire? >>guest: anything is possible. i remember back when john mccain beat george bush in the 2000 new hampshire primary, no one
5:39am
thought that could happen. and bob dole and pat buchanan. there are moments when lightning strikes. it does not mean the candidate you expected to win is going to end up losing but it just means that candidate will be shaken back to reality, but, i think, right now, this is a fluid race and it is anybody's race and not just gingrich, and romney, you can see rick santorum come up and shock everybody in iowa and catch fire. >>clayton: or michele bachmann who did well dug the straw poll and has her folks there but it is anding, if you look at the front runner, and the criticism it is not anyone's race, and limbaugh thinks it is not anyone's race, and he says what is the media scrutiny going to up fold on romney. take a listen. >> herman cain last week and the week before and now it is

embraced romney and said he is the conservative. romney hasn't changed. the whole massachusetts health care was to play four years ago so that is not new. romney hasn't held office in those four years, so i will ask rush, what changed you? because romney is the same person. he didn't hold office or take different policy positions. that is what i fines very interesting. and someone will be playing rush limbaugh's comments from fur years ago today and asking him not why are people for romney but why isn't rush limbaugh for romney this time as he was before. >>peter: are you going to stick around? >>governor huckabee: if you beg me. clay clay -- >>clayton: fewer americans thing our country is superior to other nations. there is a new poll out, and the governor may want to leave because of this.

5:46am
think big," but helping people to think small so as a result we see that reflected not mood. >> people are looking to jam my and holding jam any in high record for the handling of the situation. look at this compared to other countries how people see the united states compared to, for instance, gemini, 49 percent to 47 percent. spain, 44 percent to 32 percent, a steep decline. but it rises and falls. in the 1970's and the late years of the jimmy carter administration there was a funk that set across the country. ronald reagan's campaign was as much about a spirit of optimism as about specific economic policies and people forget that the people act like ronald reagan was the purest conservatives. he was very principled and that is what made him effective but more so, his spirit and his personal and his sense of "this
5:47am
is america," we can do anything. >>peter: so way are saying it is in proportion to what the leaders are saying as for as an american's perception were if a leader says we are lazy that has to have an effect in terms of moral and our perception of the future. are we going in the right direction? are we stronger? are we better? >> if the leader is calling us maggots and get down on four to tear us down so we are under the control of the leader, then there is a very different atmosphere and attitude than there is when a person is saying, you can did it, you can do it. look at a baseball team or football team when the cope says what they can do in the locker room and says gives we are down 21-0, we will win this thing. he is in campaign mode and it is unfortunate because the best way to be a good politician is to be

6:02am
like they may not make their deadline. peter doocy is live in washington with the latest. they are working through the weekend, huh? >> they are, alisyn. a senior congressional aide told us that things are so bleak, the house is on has -- in hospice and the family is on the way. they are not happy with the $545 billion that the republicans made because it's short of the $1.2 trillion goal, doesn't have enough tax revenue and it's too nice to the rich. >> to have something on the table that does not ask the wealthiest people of the country to share in it would be unconscionable. so this is the divide right now. and we're still working. i hope we can get there. but i don't know. at this point in time. >> so that divide senator kerry refers to is over taxes for the rich. a point his colleague senator patty murray drove home yesterday as well. republicans say the plan they offered was balanced and bipartisan and in their weekly address, they say they're hopeful that something still
6:03am
will get done. >> the hour is late. by law, our work on this committee must be completed this coming week. but i remain hopeful that we can meet our goal and i urge my democratic colleagues to join us in this effort. we have what is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity, to pass legislation that will generate millions of jobs, create a simpler, fairer tax system with lower rates for everyone and put our government on a path towards fiscal sanity. >> this morning, president obama is in the middle of a 25-hour trip to washington from his meetings in asia and so far, he has not tried to intervene in these negotiations. >> the president has obviously been engaged in numerous bilateral meetings and group meetings here. he has not made any other calls to leaders of congress but he is obviously in regular contact with his staff in washington including those who are monitoring the super committee's progress and engaging with
6:04am
congress on that issue. >> carney also said late last night that he hopes the super committee's approach is balanced. the clock is ticking and senator john kyle and dave camp told us the deadline to get everything into the cbo to have the numbers scored in time is tomorrow night. sunday night. >> alisyn: oh, man! we will stay on it all weekend. thank you. >> clayton: automatic trigger will go into effect and some economists worrying this morning that, look, if that trigger happens, so we get those defense cuts and , of course, also the bush tax cuts aren't extended that a lot of this stuff doesn't happen until 2013. so that automatic trigger takes place, that could lead to another credit downgrade. remember moody's earlier this summer, of course, downgraded the united states because of the super committee. the fact that we couldn't get a debt deal do and we had to punt it down the field to get a super committee. that's why they downgraded us then. it could be even worse this time around. >> peter: it's why so many people have so little confidence in congress. this is congress' plan. they came up with this with this
6:05am
super committee. >> clayton: they called themselves the super committee. >> peter: we can get it done in time and none of us want these onerous cuts, especially in the military as well. that would go through! >> alisyn: right. >> peter: if it happened. why are we now on saturday where everyone is biting their nails in this country saying we're worried about a downgrade and worried about another recession, we're worried about the effects this is going to have, why hasn't the president spoken out on it, why isn't the president wading into it, do the democrats want it to fail? do the republicans wanted it to fail? why the uncertainty? >> alisyn: it's so disheartening because so many people on the super committee are, you know, they understand how capitol hill works. they've been around the block a few times. john kerry, they know how bipartisanship should work. they know how negotiating works and the fact that they are at an impasse at the 11th hour and the reason that the president doesn't want to get involved if what we read is true is it didn't work when he got involved with the debt deal last time with john mayer, it fell apart.
6:06am
let's let these guys do it and the fact that they, too, are at loggerheads. >> clayton: and the white house saying to that point, we're in the executive branch. this is their job. they got elected to legislate. we'll step back and let them figure this out and see if they actually can. they have like a day left to figure out if they can do it or not. gabrielle giffords tragically was shot in arizona. now her office putting forth a really interesting idea this morning. to get movement on some of these cuts and says hey, let's start with us. her office says let's start with cutting congressional pay. >> alisyn: right, i mean, yeah, cut pay because they, apparently, congress makes 3 1/2 times what average americans make. so it would just be a show -- it would be a symbolic show of solidarity. let's cut our pay first, we'd bring in $50 million of revenue over 10 years but still, the point is it would send a message that we're all in this together. >> peter: great message, great suggestion, not gonna happen. just not gonna happen. >> clayton: you're asking them
6:07am
to cut things that they like, right? it's exactly why we were talking about this earlier this morning about the insider trading thing. that's why that bill has stalled. there's been no movement on the insider trading angle. >> alisyn: that makes more money than their salaries do. 11 republicans and 14 democrats have signed the letter. we'll let you know if -- >> peter: we'll see whether this comes to pass. >> alisyn: let's talk about what's happening in your news. fox news alert. libyan tv is reporting this morning that this is a picture of muammar qaddafi's son in custody shortly after he was just arrested. the justice minister reports that he was captured while trying to escape into neighboring niger. he and two of his aides were reportedly traveling in a convoy of cars and will soon be sent to tripoli. upon hearing the news, people celebrated firing their guns in the air. now, libya's transitional national council is expected to decide whether he will stand trial. earlier, there had been reports that he was negotiating his surrender to the international criminal court.

6:09am
almost involved in another miracle landing. he was piloting a 1958 d.c. 7 to raise money for the historical flight foundation. on the return flight from charlotte which sully was not piloting, the plane lost an engine. it did land safely back in charlotte with all 40 passengers doing fine. but, of course, you'll remember, sullenberger famously landed the flight in 2009 after a flock of geese took out some of that plane's engines. everybody on board there survived and he was a hero. engines do not like functioning around him. >> clayton: apparently. he wasn't on that flight. >> peter: everything worked out. >> alisyn: same plane. >> clayton: maybe he flipped off the engine to see if the next pilot could handle it. see if that guy got it. >> peter: i'll show you. >> take a look at your weather headlines. snow, wind and cold across the northern plains and northern rockies. windy today from texas to kansas. maybe a few delays across some

6:11am
there's all sorts of noise and commotion. we go around the back way to avoid the protesters, and end up running right into them. >> i thought well, they're kicking us, they're hitting us, we're trying to get through to school, well, have a job or trying to get a job, i think they're just rude people and they should get a job. >> clayton: there you go. rude people. little kid is on his way to school and he can eventually get a degree. >> peter: and some of those folks were actually following, this family didn't undergo it, but some were following parents and kids and kind of heckling them as they went down the street. >> alisyn: i didn't get that. the local station here said that the crowd was yelling "follow those kids" what was the point? >> peter: there is no point. and it's ridiculous. and it's frightening. and he's a cute little boy. in fact, he gave me as he left his sammy goldenstein little

>> clayton: welcome back. the 2012 election now less than a year away. and everyone stepping io high
6:16am
gear including the president. a new ad by the obama campaign is asking voters what if president obama loses his re-election bid? frank luntz put that ad to the test and joins us from des moines, iowa, where he's going to be moderating for today's presidential forum there. he's down there at ground zero, basically. frank, nice to see you this morning. >> thank you. we got 3,000 people who are going to be showing up behind me in a few hours to see six of the eight presidential candidates. but before we get to that, the ad that we tested actually did quite well. the obama administration has put out several ads between when they announced and today and this one performed the best. let's take a look.
6:17am
>> clayton: frank, pretty powerful message there. how did it resonate? >> it resonated very effectively. it takes people back to how they felt in november of 2008. obviously, americans are very angry today. but don't forget that back in
6:18am
2008, barack obama beat john mccain by seven percentage points and he did so because of emotion, because of an appeal to the heart. that's exactly what this ad does and it works. >> clayton: you're there in iowa and you're going to be there with that candidate forum, of course, and there's been some criticism heaped upon one candidate, mitt romney from rush limbaugh the other day asking the question, why is all the media criticism hits herman cain, we saw him go after rick perry and the media criticism on newt gingrich as we look at his past with his consulting firm, why does mitt romney seem to escape all of this? answer that for rush. >> well, perhaps, it's because there are 160 people who are applied for press credentials for today's forum and mitt romney won't be here, everybody else will be. so the other candidates are putting themselves up, responding to tough questions. speaking for audiences of thousands of people and mitt romney is nowhere to be found. when you put yourself out there, you open yourself up for criticism. but in the long term, it makes you a better candidate.
6:19am
>> clayton: some of the polls we've been seeing right now has newt gingrich doing well in iowa. some of the other candidates we've seen doing really well before, like michelle bachmann, that seems to have dropped off. what are you hearing from the folks you're talking to at these forums and other places? >> there's a definite surge for speaker gingrich. this place is packed. one of the reasons i think it's packed is because gingrich is participating here. but it's not just where you stand in the polls in iowa. it's the ground game. it's the type of support you have on a county by county basis and in that case, other candidates, michelle bachmann has a very good organization here. so does rick santorum and the question is will people change their minds between now and the caucus on january 3rdrd. this event today will be the biggest attended event of any campaign event in iowa between now and january 3rdrd. this event may determine who wins the iowa caucuses. >> clayton: can't wait to see the results of that. frank is there hosting the iowa
6:20am
g.o.p. presidential forum later today. check in with us tomorrow and let us know how it all goes, frank. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> clayton: coming up on the show, is post traumatic stress disorder being overdiagnosed lately? while some say the normal stresses of life are being explained as ptsd. 30 years later, police reopening the case of how actress natalie wood died. why now? judge jeanine is on the case.
6:21am
6:22am
6:23am
>> peter: from the control room, we have some quick headlines. investigators are looking into what caused a plane crash that killed oklahoma state's women's basketball coach and assistant coach. there's no word of why the single engine plane went down in the arkansas mountains.
6:24am
the ntsb says it could take nine months to figure it out. the pilot and one other person were also killed. and the house of representatives striking down a bid to amend the constitution with a balanced budget amendment. the bill was shot down 261-165. 23 votes short. four republicans joined the vast majority of democrats who opposed the bill. ali? >> alisyn: all right, peter. we've all heard about post traumatic stress disorder. it's often diagnosed in soldiers when they return home from war. now a new book titled "what doesn't kill us" claims that people all over the world are being overdiagnosed with ptsd after more common traumatic even events. joining us is the author of that book, a professor at the university of nottingham. good morning, professor. >> good morning. >> alisyn: for a long time, we only associated ptsd with soldiers returning from the battlefield but now it sounds as
6:25am
though people can be diagnosed with it even after things like a car accident or cancer. is that ptsd? >> well, what i have difficulties with is the word disorder. following traumatic events, i think it's perfectly expected that people experience intrusive thoughts, nightmares, problems concentrating, forgetfulness, sleeplessness and all the problems of post traumatic stress. i think that's a normal and natural response to trauma. in fact, i think it's a normal response that means that the person is working through the significance of what's happened to them. so i would call that post traumatic stress. post traumatic stress is a normal and natural reaction that people have to upsetting, traumatic events. the question i have is -- the question i have is when does post traumatic stress become post traumatic stress disorder? >> alisyn: what is the answer to
6:26am
that? everything you're saying makes sense. the symptoms may be the same to the returning soldier who has nightmares or the person recovering from cancer who has nightmares. what does make it a disorder in the case of soldiers? >> well, that's the big question. what does make it a disorder? and what i think is happening right now is that the idea of post traumatic stress disorder is being applied to people who might otherwise be considered as suffering from post traumatic stress. now, when i say that, i don't mean in any way that people suffering from post traumatic stress don't go through a tough time and aren't extremely distressed and suffering in very tragic ways sometimes for sure. but what i'm saying is they haven't got a disorder and they're not suffering from an illness. and those people who are suffering from the disorder are not being differentiated from those people who are going through this very normal and natural process. >> alisyn: in fact, to prove your point, let me show you how the definition in the diagnostic
6:27am
and statistical manual, the dsm, really the bible of mental health issues, how their definition has morphed from 1980 to today. here's what it said in 1980. the event in question must be "outside the range of usual human experience." let me show you today, the definition. the focus shifts from an objective traumatic event to the subjective response of the person affected. in other words, can it can be a common tragic experience such as a car accident and i want to get to another point you've made in the notes which i think is so important. you say there can actually be a positive result from having something traumatic happen to you. >> that's right. ok. now that's exactly it. people who are suffering from ptsd are going to struggle to make sense of things. but people who are suffering from post traumatic stress, this is a normal and natural process and the end point of it is often define new meanings in life.
6:28am
hundreds of studies have now been carried out that show anywhere between 30% to 70% of people report positive benefits in the aftermath of trauma. now, that's not to say that they're not also suffering from post traumatic stress. at least in the short term. but reports of positive change are very, very common. people report either relationships increase in quality and depth, how they become more mature as people, wiser within themselves. in life change. in a way, it's like sometimes the things that are in the background of our life like relationships and stuff, they're put in the background because we spend so much time chasing after status and trauma sometimes turns that on its head. >> alisyn: people can get stronger which is why your book is called "what doesn't kill us." thanks so much for coming in to help us explain this distinction. thank you. >> thank you very much. >> alisyn: coming up, what's in a name? apparently a lot to peta. they want the town of turkey,

6:34am
crisis. >> clayton: 911, what's your emergency? hi, this is alisyn. i had a pie issue. >> alisyn: all right. in the meantime, let's get right to your headlines. we have to tell you what the breaking news is this morning. christian fernandez is the 12-year-old accused of beating his 2-year-old half brother to death. he is rejecting a plea deal offered by florida prosecutors apparently. the deal would have reduced the charges from first-degree murder to second degree murder and that would have put him in juvenile hall until he's 21. his lawyer says he didn't do anything wrong. police are busting a group of waiters who allegedly stole customers' credit card information. the waiters work at several high end steakhouses in new york, new jersey and connecticut including big chains like morton's and the capital grille. the scammers reportedly netting more than $1 million from their scheme. despite low approval ratings, president obama's re-election team is raking in the dough.
6:35am
a new report shows that he raised $86 million in the last six months alone. that's more than the eight g.o.p. presidential candidates combined. and while they're not playing ball, the best names in hoops are teaming up for a fundraising basketball game for president obama. dwight howard, chris bosh and kevin durant have all pledged to play in the next game. you'd think i know what i'm talking about, don't you? >> clayton: very convincing. >> alisyn: this is happening in washington, d.c. >> clayton: there's no nba season, why not? >> alisyn: listen to this story. madeleine is enlisting in the marines after her fiance, travis nelson was killed in afghanistan back in august. she says she's doing this because he wasn't able to complete his mission. she's doing it for him. >> people say oh, travis wouldn't want you to do this. but i think i know travis better than everyone and i think that he'd be -- he'd be ok with it as long as it's what i wanted to do.
6:36am
>> alisyn: in march, she will go to paris island for training. that's the same month she and nelson were to be married. her first orders are to gain some weight and to get in shape. wow. what a sacrifice and what a story. >> peter: talk about semper fi. >> alisyn: a school district is coming under fire for its parody version of the 12 days of christmas. here's what they changed the lyrics to. i won't sing to spare you all. first day after christmas, my true love and i had a fight so i chopped the pear tree down and burned it just for spite. then with a single cartridge, i shot that blasted partridge that my true love gave to me. the second day after christmas, i pulled on the old rubber gloves and very gently wrung the next of both the turtle doves. my true love, my true love gave to me. all right, well, some people say that crosses the line. but the school still supports the song. they say the song in question is meant to be a spoof on the 12
6:37am
days of christmas and has been performed by fruitport choirs in the past. to my knowledge, there haven't been concerns raised in the past. performances of this song. many of our viewers agree. tell us what rhonda has to say, peter. >> peter: rhonda has to say the song is a spoof. i sang it in 1984. it is funny especially when the choir can do some choreography. so she wants them dancing with it. ok. >> alisyn: ok, all right. >> clayton: we don't have a sense of humor in this country. daniel if twitter said that song is amusing to some people but not appropriate for children to sing. two sides of the coin. less us know what you think, ffweekend on twitter or frenldz at foxnews.com. >> peter: should christmas be spoofed? >> alisyn: by violence. >> clayton: and wringing turtle doves' next. here's rick reichmuth. >> do a little dance and then it's all good. >> clayton: and the choreography. >> it's good. you work on the choreography while i do the weather here, all right.
6:38am
take a look at the maps, guys. cold start across areas of the northern plains. coldest air we've seen all year long. or at least so far this winter so we've got the cold air moving in. warm down across the south where those two meet. there will be severe weather tomorrow and monday across parts of texas, oklahoma, maybe into arkansas. we had severe weather last week and we'll see a little bit more. today, a lot of people may be getting out to start your thanksgiving travel. we're going to see some delays in minneapolis because we're going to be seeing some snow. very windy as well so i think that's going to be probably the worst airport to get in or out of. chicago, dallas and portland, there will be some minor delays. it's going to be breezy in all of those areas and getting a little bit worse for your day tomorrow. move forward and take a look at the forecast. in the northeast, you're looking pretty good. temperatures in the 50's for everyone. plenty of sunshine. down across the southeast, another sunny day as well. maybe florida, coastal areas seeing a little bit of rain on the eastern coast. it's going to be heavy at times. across the west, another storm
6:39am
moving into southern california today and tomorrow. temperatures quite cool. 58 for the high in downtown los angeles. back to you inside. >> clayton: thanks, rick. michelle just asked me am i opposed to eating? no. what's thanksgiving without some pie? we're here to show you how to make the perfect pie, michelle stewart is the author of this book "perfect pies." so turn to that if you need advice on how to do it. nice to see you. >> nice to see you, too, good to see you. >> clayton: crisco has the pie hotline and there are pie crises that you need to call this hotline. >> definitely. i'm working with crisco to work on the pie hotline, 1-877-4pie-tips for any novice beginners looking for any tips to make the perfect pie crust and you can look in my book for any further pie crusts along the way. ice cold ingredients is the most important thing. >> clayton: you start with the dough. ice cold ingredients in ice cold water and cold shortening so it doesn't flake off?
6:40am
>> that's the most important thing and it gets the marbleization within the pie crust. you can see the vegetable shortening throughout the pie crust makes for a nice flaky crust when you go to bake it off. and i like rolling in parchment paper that we have here so you can see it's really easy to pick up your pie crust and place into your pie dish afterwards. >> clayton: pieces aren't falling off. >> exactly. you have a nice uniform crust that will come up and go in the pie dish. one of my favorite tricks that my grandmother taught me who i learned from is brush your pie crust with some sort of dairy product. i prefer a heavy cream. it gives it a nice, flaky, brown color. you know that golden color that you're looking for. >> clayton: you said to make it a day ahead of time. >> yes. make your dough the day ahead. you're going to wrap it tight in seran wrap and put it in your refrigerator, make it nice and cold. the weather outside is very important in determining how much water you add in making your pie crust. >> clayton: you want me to mix up some apples? >> we're going to make an apple
6:41am
mixture here, sugar, cinnamon, dash of nutmeg for the sweetener. >> clayton: i hope you're paying attention. she's going to call the pie hotline. >> mix it with the whisk there. >> clayton: am i putting the apples in, too? >> mix it up here, mix up the dry ingredients and place it over the apples. mix them up and then we're doing an apple cranberry pie with a crumb topping today. for those of you who are too intimidated to make that double pie crust, in my book, i have a brown sugar, cinnamon crumb topping you can place over your apples. but don't be too intimidated, feel the love for your pie crust. most important thing -- >> clayton: nothing says intimidation like this. >> oh, goodness. so let's pour it in here at the moment. ok? you got to put the cranberries. >> clayton: forget them. i was so intimidated that i forgot the cranberries. >> that's ok. mix it up. all over here. we're good! you're doing great! >> clayton: that's easy. >> like i said, we have the crumb topping. we can place on top here. makes it a nice, you know, crunchy topping on here if you'd like to try your apple
6:42am
cranberry. >> clayton: look what i just made. i don't know if you can see this. how long did you bake this for? >> you bake it for 415, 425 for 15, 20 minutes and then knock it down to 350, 375. you want to make sure the apples are nice and tender. also depends on what kind of apples you use. the apple type changes as the year goes on. >> clayton: fantastic stuff. thank you so much. the book is, of course, "perfect pies" i can't speak right now. check it out. and also, don't forget the pie hotline if you have any crises like in the alisyn camerota house. thanks so much. >> thank you! >> alisyn: that was great. >> clayton: it's the pie. it threw me off. it's michelle. >> it's the pie talking. >> clayton: thank you so much, michelle. appreciate it. john and camera? >> alisyn: thank you, got it. if i call the pie hotline, i want them to deliver a pie coming up on thanksgiving. tell me what's coming up on the show. >> peter: they called her death a drowning. 30 years later, police are reopening the case of how actress natalie wood died. but why now?

6:47am
what's going on here? >> this is what's called a cold case. it was never closed but it was put away as an accidental drowning. what we know now that natalie wood had 24 bruises on her body. think about it, alisyn. i mean, here's a woman who is an actress, who's on television, who is in hollywood. 24 bruises, where are they? on her arms and on her legs and on the side of her body. but they say she fell off the boat. here's a woman that we know was afraid of dark sea water. did not swim. was so afraid of the water that she wouldn't go in her own swimming pool and now we're supposed to believe that oh, she decided in her nightgown, her socks and down jacket to go for a ride on a dingy which, by the way, when they found it on shore next morning, the oars were on lockdown and there's no indication she used it. if you're a woman at that level, you don't say at 12:00 after a boozing night and fighting that, you know, you don't say i'll take the dingy out. you call the captain and say
6:48am
pull up the dingy. i'm going to shore. but what's curious is that the husband, r.j. wagner, says yeah, i was pretty angry that night. we were all boozed up and i took wine bottle and i broke it on the table. i mean, who takes a wine bottle by the stem and breaks it on the table. and the rumor is, of course, that she was having an affair with christopher walken. what i want to know and hang on one second is how come we've never heard from christopher walken? where is he? he says he went to bed after this huge fight and then the next morning when he woke up, they told him she was dead. if a woman is missing from the boat, don't you say oh, my god, help us, we got to find her? >> peter: there's one published report that another woman on another boat nearby near catalina island heard some woman screaming out for help in the water saying i'm drowning. now, all the things you said combined with that, this sounds to me, in my opinion, like it was some kind of cover-up. >> what you've got is dennis daverne who was the captain who
6:49am
said i didn't really tell him everything. >> alisyn: let's listen to what he's saying now. >> was the fight between natalie wood and her husband, robert wagner what ultimately led to her death? >> yes. >> you're saying that wagner didn't do everything he should have done to look for her after she went missing? >> exactly. >> alisyn: and in addition to that, what he's saying is wagner specifically told him not to call the coast guard, to let her basically even though she was missing just forget about her, don't turn on the searchlight. in addition to what you say, you've got bruises. you've got fighting. you've got boozing. a woman afraid of the water. a stranger who hears screaming. >> peter: we're about to go. what's his credibility? he says he was drunk. what kind of witness is he? >> you know what? it's a problem. he does have credibility -- he's going to be on my show tonight. i'm going to ask him all these questions tonight but you know what? i've tried enough homicide cases to know, people after a year say you know what? i got to come clean with this.

the home -- birthplace of bob wills, the famous bob wills. why do you think they would do that? did you give it any consideration at all? >> no, peter, we didn't give it any consideration and they're just trying to advance their agenda at the expense of our residents and we're not very interested in that and i'm sure a lot of people got a good chuckle out of it but if we were to promote anything in our community, we'd be more likely to promote a slogan like "save turkey, eat more beef." that would be of more value to us. >> peter: because beef is a big industry down there so some pork forks also came in saying that you could change the name to a pork-related name, of course, right? >> that's right. >> peter: what was that name they said? >> barbecue, texas. >> peter: so between barbecue, texas, and the tofu, where does
6:56am
that stand if we were giving odds today, mayor, more likely going to become thanksgiving, turkey, texas or barbecue, texas? >> well, i'm pretty sure we're going to stick to turkey, texas. we're proud of our heritage. we're a very small community and we're one of the poorer communities in one of the poorer counties in the state of texas so we don't have a whole lot to be proud of except our heritage. and we're very proud of our name, turkey, texas, and of the rio grande wild turkeys that live there. >> peter: thanks so much, mayor. we'll see you soon and let us know how things go on this. we appreciate it. more on "fox & friends" in just two minutes.
